Last month we caught a first look at this upcoming blue and silver colorway of the Nike Kobe 11 that was scheduled to release in mid-April. Today we get a much better look at the shoe courtesy of official images.

This upcoming colorway of the Nike Kobe 11 features a gradient Flyknit upper that starts off with Brave Blue on the toe and then shifts to University Blue at the heel. University Blue also lands on the laces and the Kobe branding on the tongue. Metallic Silver provides some contrast as it can be seen on the Swoosh logos on the side panels. It is being said that this colorway of the Kobe 11 is inspired by Eric Avar, the man who design Kobe’s Nike sneakers. We should get confirmation from Nike on whether that’s true or not in the next couple weeks. One feature that makes this pair stand out from others is the patch on the right heel that reads “I see beauty in the struggle.”

Take a look at the official images above and remember that the Nike Kobe 11 Brave Blue will release on April 14, 2016 for a retail price of $200.

Author’s Take

I would have liked this colorway much better if the entire Flyknit upper would have been Brave Blue and they would have just gotten rid of the University Blue detailing. The Metallic Silver Swoosh is also a nice touch. Still a solid colorway, but not for $200.
